Very skilled animator, just not an accomplished director. I only enjoyed NIMH and An American Tail

He did know how to make such a sad scene in the Land Before Time on poor Littlefoot's mother. I made be produce a bucket full of tears

How did he go from gems like Home Alone, Adventures in Babysitting, Mrs, Doubtfire, and the first two Harry Potter films to crap like Pixels and I Love You Beth Cooper?

Frankly, I'm starting to doubt Columbus' talent for directing after the trashy PIXELS

A solid B+! Burton has some light in his dark projects! I loved his Batman films, Sleepy Hollow and its effects, Sweeney Todd and its lyrics, Corpse Bride, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. However, I didn't like the dry project and hangover of Planet of the Apes, the poor 3D effects on Alice in Wonderland, the bad 'comedy' of Dark Shadows, and the pointless plot of Edward Scissorhands

You know it's bad when a director manages make his own unique style feel repetitive

I won't deny that his movies were pretty creative back in the day, but at this point his style is just repetitive and boring

His Batman films are overrated, and need I mention 'Alice in Wonderland', 'Planet of the Apes' and 'Dark Shadows'?
